    Browsing a couple major retailers and Gibson’s website there’s been a $200 increase to most of the Les paul and sg line. I didn’t look at any other models. Thankfully I just purchased a new SG special a week ago.
    Prices go up every year it seems, on many things.

    We haven’t seen inflation like we’ve seen the past nine months in over 30 years.

    I wish. Since everyone "works from home" now golf courses are packed. And they can charge whatever the f they want.

    Not for me, but we are lazy lol. Local places in NH have had bands back for a while and they are still paying. Now, as for booking a tour or something yeah you are prob right.

    Inflation as previously mentioned. EVERYTHING has gotten ridiculous.

    People don't understand that when you give money away it's worthless. Pretty *ucking simple in my book.

    Most vendors keep insisting on giving consumers less, ........for more $.
    It's new trend apparently. However, they can do that in the monopoly they've created.
    I'll boycott all that I can right now. Just because :)
    Buy right guys !

    Remember 2009 >

    Yeah it sucks but it is what it is especially when getting american built guitars.

    I know nothing about the economics of it but hopefully it doesn’t go up too much more
